Angry mplayer ./configure ignoring x11


Why is the ./configure program for mplayer ignoring the fact that my system has x11 and xv video drivers? I have tested them with bmplayer, but I need the console program mplayer.
this is the output from ./configure:
[root@localhost matt]# mplayer -vo help

'config.h' and 'config.mak' contain your configuration options.
Note: If you alter theses files (for instance CFLAGS) MPlayer may no longer
compile *** DO NOT REPORT BUGS if you tweak these files ***

'make' will now compile MPlayer and 'make install' will install it.
Note: On non-Linux systems you might need to use 'gmake' instead of 'make'.

Please check mtrr settings at /proc/mtrr (see DOCS/HTML/en/video.html#mtrr)


Check configure.log if you wonder why an autodetection failed (check whether
the development headers/packages are installed).

If you suspect a bug, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.

You should run ./configure and make as a normal user, use the root acct to run make install. Don't know if this will make a difference but it's the recommended method of compiling and installing source programs.

You stand more chance of getting a more precise/better quality response if you state the distro you are using.

You might want to consider installing the Fedora .rpm mplayer package instead. It's available from here: http://greysector.rangers.eu.org/mplayer/ There's also instructions on how to use apt-get to fetch and install software.

Which one? The xv driver issue or the mplayer issue?

Solution

The problem was the mplayer configure utility when installing Fedora I chose not to install the xorg-x11 development libraries thinking I wouldn't use them. This causes the configure program to fail to recognise the x11 video output driver. I found a very useful yum.conf fedora file and ran "yum install xorg*". I am still working on getting mplayer to display embedded video streams in web pages.

Thanks for your help.
